1) In September 2017 we received an online application from a couple looking for a bridging loan of just under £1 million, which was needed within the next 72 hours to secure a deal. A previous sale had fallen through due to issues at the other end, so our clients needed urgent help. We used our network of lenders to secure a bridging loan, and the funds were transferred to the clients’ solicitor within the next two days, well ahead of the deadline.
2) We were approached by a couple in their late 50’s in April 2017 regarding the purchase of a luxury apartment for their daughter. She had already exchanged contracts off plan three years beforehand, but since the property was re-valued the amount the mortgage company was willing to loan was substantially reduced. Her parents were happy to provide some of the money, but they needed help with the final £75,000. We were able to secure the loan and transfer the funds directly to their account within just 72 hours, allowing their daughter to move into her new apartment by the original date she had planned.
3) In June 2017 we were phoned by a prospective client who needed to make a significant divorce settlement within the next month or be forced to go back to court. We worked in close contact with his lawyers to meet the client’s needs in what was a very stressful and challenging time for him, accessing the funds quickly and efficiently and enabling him to pay his wife on time.

Bridging Loan Types
We provide you with two different types of bridging loans. These are-
In case of an open bridging loan, the borrower has to propose an existing plan for repayment of his/her loan. However, in this case, there is no particular date set at the loan’s outset. In open bridge, lender defines a cutoff point based on which you have to repay the loan amount.
The closed bridge loan, on the other side, requires the borrower to mention a set date to repay the loan. For instance, borrower exchanged on the sale already and has a particular completion date. Hence, he has to repay the bridging loan with the sale of his property.
Bridging Loans – Reasons for using them
Payments and Interests
Bridging loan’s structure may vary with each other. A few bridging loans lets the borrower pay only the interest for each month and repay the actual amount of loan at the end of his term. This type of structure suits perfectly for all individuals, who have access to the cash flow on a regular basis during the entire loan period. In this way, borrowers will be able to fulfill their monthly rate of interest payments.
In this case, interest will roll up and the borrower has to pay it during the end of his term. This option is for those borrowers, who fail to pay interest monthly during the term; instead, they receive a lump sum amount during the end for paying back both the loan and the interest together.
We have also created a range of bridging loans that are designed specifically for buying properties at auction.
